WEAK MONUMENTS / a topography of public murder in Thessaloniki

“Weak Monuments” is an exhibition prepared by the “Built Event group” with the ambition to describe a city out of some selected crimes that took place in its public space. Thessaloniki is marked by famous murders; it is also an ordinary modern town where a lot of "insignificant" criminal acts take place. The aim of this Built Event's show is to pose the question of murder in an urban scale: a city is shaped as a layering of receiving, recording and placing its murders.
The term "κτιστ συμβν" (ktisto symban = "built event") describes a particular (theoretical or practical) "area" which fades away between a procedure and the procedure’s traces: a built procedure, its theatrical preparation, a work of tracing, and some random resultant traces.
